Speaking up against racism It can be difficult to talk to people who have a different opinion than you about racism - particularly if you feel strongly about your beliefs. <3 Our tip for avoiding an argument is to never call somebody a racist. If you do this, the person will become defensive and not listen to anything else you say. Instead, you should tell them that you disagree with what they have said, and explain why. You should only criticize the comment, not the person.
"For decades upon decades upon decades upon decades, indigenous Australians lived in a land, their land, where in the eyes of the law they were literally classed as animals. And I know that goes some way to explaining why calling someone an ape is more than just a bit of juvenile name calling". Charlie Pickering.
